jonathan-portrait1President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday said that the Federal Government would ensure that the new investors in the power sector would not rip off Nigerians.

Jonathan gave the assurance in his message at the Third Session of the sixth Synod of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion in Ihiagwa, Owerri, in Imo.

He restated the Federal Government’s commitment to improve infrastructure as well as ensure that the power sector performed better than the telecommunications industry.

Represented by Chief Chukwuemeka Nwogu, the Minister of Labour, Jonathan said the privatisation of the power sector would make electricity sufficient for the nation.

“There will be power all over the country; all we need is for everybody to support the government to achieve our goals,” he said.

The president also said government was working hard to reposition the railway sub-sector, adding that that trains were already operating on the North-South routes.

“The eastern corridor would soon be resuscitated. We are taking bold steps to tackle the problems of the country and by the grace of God, we will succeed,” he said.

On the proposed national conference, he said he was convening it to enable Nigerians to discuss the issues in the country.

“Let us talk and settle the issue of church burning, bombing, ethnicity and various other problems bedeviling the country. Everyone must be involved”, he said.

The Bishop of Egbu Diocese, Rt. Rev. Geoffrey Okorafor, prayed for the president and the nation, and sued for support of peace and development processes in the country. (NAN)
